Al Ewing and Martín Cóccolo explore a traditional “immortal” in the new Immortal Thor series this August.
Ewing (famous for tagging the Incredible Hulk with the “immortal” moniker) said that new series will include mystery and some new adversaries for Thor when “Doors are indeed opening, buried secrets are waiting to be unearthed, and ancient gods—elder gods, if you will—are coming to bring trial and sorrow to Earth, Asgard, and Thor personally, and he’s going to need to be his absolute highest self to face them. And even then, he might not make it through. The omens are sinister. The storm is at the gate.”
Cóccolo is excited to be working on Immortal Thor with Ewing and said, “Even though I’m the artist of the project, I’m enjoying being surprised by the legend that is Al Ewing every time I turn a page of script and not fully know where the story is going. So, both as the artist and a fan, I tell you let Al cook and I don’t think you’ll regret it. And all I can assure you, dear reader, is that I’m making Al’s story as beautiful and as powerful as I possibly can.”
